designing a visual studio workflow for SP 2013 I wonder how to get values of list items from another list than current list. My workflow

  • is not bound to a list
  • has to access items of another list (let's call it 'customer')

I took a LookupSPList activity from Toolbox to the Sequence. Now, the Input is a ListId, hm. How to get the ListId of 'customer' list and how to retrieve list items from there?

You have a few options:

  1. Use an Association or Initiation Form and when creating the association you tell the workflow which lists it will be working with
  2. Use the REST API to query the list by title. You do this using the HttpSend activity.
